Mile 1.1 Old Exit Glacier Rd.
Seward, AK 99664
Seavey's Ididaride Sled Dog Tours have been voted “Best Sled Dog Ride and Tour in Alaska” by Alaska Magazine. Visit Iditarod Champion Mitch Seavey's homestead, home to three generations of Iditarod mushers. Experience an exciting 2-mile real dog sled ride, tour the racing kennel, meet the dogs, cuddle adorable husky puppies and listen to stories from the trail.
On this tour, you’ll get to visit the home to one of the oldest and most prominent sled dog racing teams in the world and spend time with champion sled dogs that Mitch Seavey has trained and raced. Mitch Seavey has run the famed Iditarod many times, winning the race in 2004. His father was one of the founders of the race, and his sons compete in it now as well.
When the dogs get hitched up, an Iditarod finisher guides the custom-wheeled sled through a mile of rainforest, emerging into a river-cut canyon surrounded by mountains. Next, you’ll return to the kennel to meet some of the 75 dogs and cuddle with their puppies while learning what it’s like to race out on the frozen tundra.
The best way to see Seward in a day! This all-day tour is guided by a life-long Alaskan and is a great way to get an overview of some of the highlights of living in Alaska.
First, you’ll tour historic downtown Seward, one of Alaska’s oldest communities. Then continue on to Mount Marathon and visit “Mile 0” of the Iditarod trail. You’ll continue on to Kenai Fjords National Park and take a short walk right up to the face of famous Exit Glacier. This is a good chance to learn about the history, flora, and fauna of the area while keeping an eye out for moose, bear, mountain goats, and spawning salmon.
Sit down for lunch at the Resurrection Roadhouse. Then finish off the day by heading back to the Seavey kennels for the Wilderness Sled Dog Ride and Tour, described above.
From Anchorage: Drive 118 miles south on the Seward Hwy. Just before you reach Seward, turn right onto Exit Glacier Rd, followed by a right onto Old Exit Glacier Rd. Go another mile and Seavey’s will be on the right.
